Gaza: “Seriously wrong” bombing killed members of American NGOs admits Israeli Army

For a “serious mistake” the head of the Israeli army mentions, when seven workers of the non-governmental organization World Central Kitchen (WCK) were killed in a plane bombardment that launched it in “This incident was a serious mistake,” said the chief of the general national defense staff, General Herchi Khalevi, in a taped message to X. “It was a mistake to follow incorrect night reconnaissance, during war, in very complex circumstances. It should not have been done,” the general added. “We share the mourning of families (victims) and the World Central Kitchen organization from the depth of our hearts,” the general continued. “Independent organization will investigate in depth the event and make public its findings over the next few days,” he announced. WCK, which is based in the United States, was among the few non-governmental organisations still operating in the Palestinian enclave, which has suffered major disasters due to the war that in a few days is half a year between Israel and the Palestinian Islamist Hamas movement; announced that it suspended its activity after the bombing, launched on Monday night against cars that brought its logo to distinct points in Deir al Bala (centrally). According to the NGO, the victims were three British nationals, a man with dual citizenship, American and Canadian, a Polish national, an Australian national and Palestinian driver and interpreter of the group. Since the outbreak of war, WCK has participated in humanitarian operations by distributing meals in the Gaza Strip, where the majority of approximately 2.4 million inhabitants are facing famine, according to the UN. He contributed to the mission of the first ship to depart for the enclave in mid-March from Cyprus. Israeli state chief Isaac Herchog voiced last Tuesday night with a press release that released his services “deep grief” and his “tolerant condolences” to the organization and families of the victims. Earlier Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke of a blow “without intention”, a “tragic” incident. Governments and international organizations reacted very strongly, with the UN denouncing the “defiance of international humanitarian law” by the Israeli army and even the US, Israel’s closest ally at international level, expressing “aggression”, with a press release released by President Joe Biden’s services.
